I spent some time Tuesday night with the high-spirited, creative Omaha Modern Quilt Guild. They invited me to come and talk to their group about some of my quilty endeavors and experience. The hardest part was deciding what quilts to take and how many. I don't have every quilt I've ever made, but since I teach classes I like to keep them around for awhile in case I teach the class again. So I had plenty to choose from. Once I'd made up my mind, I packed them up for the outing. I had quite a load as I carried them all in.
Hey, quilts do take up a lot of room, ok?
I had a good time and enjoyed their questions and enthusiasm for quilting. I got to see some projects they are working on for a Shades of Gray challenge, as well as see in person a beautiful charity quilt they made for QuiltCon. They made it in four sections and then sewed the sections together. You can read about it here. They will be donating it locally soon.
When I left they gave me a goodie box! I love presents, so couldn't wait to peak inside and see what was in there.
